Photo of the Week - Mastigia Jellyfish

Commonly known as Spotted, or Lagoon Jellies, these invertebrates are common all over the tropical Pacific Ocean and are usually found near the surface of the water where their symbiotic zooxanthellae do them the most good. There are many species of jellyfish in this genus and frequently the differences only arise as they age.
